Full Spectrum Birth Work
A full spectrum birth worker (also known as a doula) is trained to support folks through a variety of reproductive experiences. I am a trained death doula, labor & postpartum doula & loss doula.
All people deserve healthful, satisfying & empowering reproductive experiences. As your doula I make sure
your preferences & autonomy are respected & honored so that can happen!
For 10 years I served predominately as a labor & postpartum doula, attending 1-4 births per per month, 10
months out of the year. In 2017 I was named "Outstanding DTI Doula" by Doula Trainings International as one
of 8 selected doulas from all over the world. The nominees were chosen because "of the outstanding
commitment they show in advocating & providing inclusive, compassionate & intentional doula services".
** At this time I am not taking on any labor doula clients **
